The film, directed by Koji Shima, was one of many early Japanese monster films quickly produced after the success of Toho's Godzilla in 1954. The film was loosely based on a novel by Gentaro Nakajima. After release, the film was met with negative reviews, with critics calling it "bizarre" and accusing it of using science fictionclichés. Warning from Space influenced many other Japanese science fiction films, such as Gorath.

Good Quality Upgrade
Brought to you by the folks who gave us Japanese TVs Starman. While the Starman adventure series was meant for kids, "Warning from space" is a science fiction film for a mostly adult audience. So what if it borrows ideas from western films like "When Worlds Collide." Nevertheless it's an interesting movie, and fun to watch.
